Tiana's Bayou Adventure construction walls - January 25 2023
Posted: Wednesday January 25, 2023 10:01am ET by WDWMAGIC Staff

The construction walls surrounding the former Splash Mountain attraction at Magic Kingdom have been replaced with taller walls to further restrict the view into the construction site of Tiana's Bayou Adventure.

Walls went up overnight following the closure of Splash Mountain, but in some places were only a few feet tall. The new walls are the full 8ft tall height.

The Briar Patch gift shop remains closed and free of walls, with signage still in place.

The restrooms near the former Splash Mountain exit remain open as normal, accessed with a narrow walkway between construction walls.

On the ride itself, the water is fully drained, and the logs have been removed.

Not that I haven't been very wrong before, but I do feel like something will eventually occupy the weird gaps at the top and bottom of the mural. I feel like they would've just made it several siding panels taller otherwise.

That's my only nit to pick. It needs framing.

maybe the mural would look better if there weren't hard borders on it. if the colors and imagery spilled over with whisps and flourishes onto a small section of the other panels and not just straight rectangular border

Really enjoying that mossy treatment on the upper levels in this photo. I feel like what we've seen so far of the character paint on the exterior rockwork is all pretty handsome.

I think Bob C needs something to do. Maybe call him on the weekends?

They aren't putting gardeners up there weekly to weed and fertilize.....

Uh, aren’t most of the flowers on this thing artificial? Someone can correct me if I’m wrong, but most of the vegetation on the mountain itself looks that way to me.

After going to TDL, that was something I was not ready to realize how much I missed it. Specifically at the Disneyland hotel that had some really pretty ones.
